Malaria cannot survive well within “partially defective” redblood cells. Thus, heterozygous tend to survive better than eitherof the homozygous conditions. If 9% of a given population is bornwith the severe form of sickle-cell anemia, what percentage of thepopulation will be more resistant to malaria because they areheterozygous for the sickle-cell gene? What percentage of the population is most susceptible to the malaria parasite because they have normal (homozygous) red blood cells? If the population size is395,000, how many individuals are there of EACH genotype?
